Feb 24th 2024 SKIDAWAY ISLAND MARATHON Sat Feb 24th, 7:00am Start, 7:30am 5k Start
Savannah has been called, “America’s most beautiful city” and Skidaway Island is one of its jewels. This is your opportunity to run where most Savannahians only dream if running. It isn’t on your everyday tourist website because this course is hosted in the premiere Island Neighborhood; The Landings Association and The Landings Club
Run Saturday 24th, at 7am in either the half or full marathon. Enjoy beautiful scenery, a quiet and peaceful course hosted by a local race company. About 300 of our runners will participate in the Marathon and 500 in the half. 200 more will run the 5k. Then enjoy an afternoon in the fabulous Savannah Area. You can tour downtown, hit the beach on Tybee Island or explore the rivers looking for dolphins or fishing.
You will enjoy miles of perfect scenery, amazing marsh and river front views, elegant homes and sneak peaks of the Landings Golf Courses. This is mostly an open course because the traffic is minimal, and you’ll likely share the road with a homeowner enjoying their daily golf cart ride. The course is almost entirely paved; generally super flat. It is certified by US Track and Field and can be used as a qualifying time. You can expect green grass, flowers and cool breezes off the marsh. The average temperature has been in the high 70s by noon. It is small next to the national races so you won’t be fighting an crowds for your free parking.
